Since the release of his debut single “SuperJam” on Jeffree’s last year, Juyen Sebulba has gained impressive momentum. Etching his wild big room sound into each track, Juyen has been on the up and up receiving recognition from the likes of dance music moguls such as Laidback Luke, who has since signed him to his record label, Mixmash. With his latest track he’s teamed up with Australian producer and Electro/Dutch House wiz kid Rob Pix to deliver a massive tune just in time to take over your soul. “Body Rock” is a result of the floating head from the epic Sean Connery film “Zardoz” spending a weekend at Ultrafest and deciding to lay down a track. Designed to seek out the deepest corners of your inner ear hole and destroy any speaker system via guns and candy bracelets exploding out of his mouth!

813 just dropped a preview of his new EP XOXO, dropping 4/24 on Jeffree’s! Summertime starts early for Russia’s futuristic beatsmith 813. His latest EP on Jeffree’s is the soundtrack to an infinite waterslide in a Nintendo 64-bit world. “XOXO” starts off the release with hype-inducing chord stabs, that builds and drops with more energy than a new born baby could fathom. If you made an apple pie in 2046 and set it on your window sill, birds would come by and whistle the first 32 bars to “Thank You.” It’s a timeless positive motivator that suddenly hits you with a “dry hump in the fetal position” Jersey drop. Once you make your way back to your feet you’re just in time for “Prpl Drunc” a sort of reprise to “XOXO” that leaves you on the beach with a MaiTai while your snorkel and fins dry by the sunset.
Just in time for everyone’s favorite holiday we’ve unleashed the “Piff Pack” pre-order onto the Mad Decent merch store (All Orderings Shipping May 19th). Featuring the MD Logo Weed Fill on a black tank + Weed Air Freshener + Trash Rabbit Grinder!
In a world in where there is an ongoing battle between relevance and longevity, it is very hard to focus on particular molecules that would morph the complete organism until the change is notorious.
Luckily, we are witness to one that is slowly but steadily getting more present in more and more releases.
OBSCURE BASS is a monster take on Tropical Bass.
We are not talking little hindrances like zombies, the ring girl or even Hulk. No, we’re talking Godzilla versus King Kong, where two ferocious forces get berserk and get down with the truly dirty. ILLUMINVTY may not be financed by shady corporations, lead by well known mega-billionaires, but they took the name and aesthetics to create a subversive form of cohesive sarcasm with the hopes of mass consumption.
It’s not only the low and deepness of this bass, but making this a full-fledged epic tribute to Miami Bass and Dirty South beat-makers with current sonic fixes.
There are no peaks and valleys, instead straight adrenaline rushes until you hardline or surrender. Entranced in a brilliant subterfuge of percussion, bass and budding rhythms under the beats clapping there spans numerous cultures.
People, especially not familiar with the ever expanding and eclectic afro-colombian music, would not see how to adhere to this trap-influenced deep bass merging into an emotional charged genre like cumbia.
However, Fake Moustache & ILLUMINVTY found a way to pull it off.
One thing about this album is when you download it, you will find an amazing collection of art made by Cuantika Studios ,whose work has reached the masses in subtle ways.
If you have recently seen Mad Decent, and in fact a great portion of related blogs, you may have noticed a new slow and addictive branch in the Brazilian Bass. In fact, this track also in the EP featuring underground icon Deize tigrona, will drop even lower the frequencies while keeping pace with the new approach.
Cohesive examples can be found in all sorts of releases.
Brazil can be represented by AMA$$A, who drops his signature to Pagodao.
This cut will feed all your bass hunger. It is also free.
Israeli Bangeristas/Activists Balkan Beat Box get involved in this approach by the hands of Burnin’ Man usual suspect Joro-Boro. His take of “Political F*ck” is so on point digging further the bass into the ground while making a statement.
Last but not least, perfect beauty emerges from a chaotic scenery of overpopulated trap-inspired releases in Asali from Flarve.
Like the Cactus’ flower in the middle of the desert. This song will only be seen by those who look for it.
So enjoy it.
